Dh is just not being the father I expect him to be to our son right now. Well we got squirrel problems at home. Called pest control to see what to do. Ok they tell me they do not patch up holes they came in from. But can trap them and release them outside. Well we can do that for less. And I know how they got in in the first place. Through a vent on the roof. It can be accessed from the crawl space in the house. Our son is suppose to take some of this heavy duty screen I bought. Staple it up over the opening of this vent. That'll keep them out. Our son is almost 17yrs old. He is very capable of the work. Says he'll do it. But procrastinates over it. So dh yells at me. Says Oh you just will let the problem get real bad. I said excuse me I bought supplies to fix the problem. Now be a father and make our son do the work. I said tell him no computer time untill the work is done. Right now our son has been playing some game. World of War Craft. It's a online game but software to play it is installed on the computer. I am almost to the point of deleting the software for that game off the computer. Dh says don't do that. You know he'll be mad at you. Well then stand behind me when I say he has to do the work. It's not real hard to staple up the screen. I even bought a power staple gun. He also has to look and see if them squirrels chewed holes anywhere else to get in. Then we get more supplies to patch them up. After all our son did say he could do the work and would do it. Come the weekend which is upon us almost. He does the work or I going to delete his game.
Do what my dad use to do with my brother.... He use to take his power cords and other cords for his computer, so it wasn't able to be used until all of his chores were done. LOL! It worked. My brother now runs and does everything that my dad tells him to do so that he can get his computer back sooner. Good luck!
Our son did the work today. Well I hope that took care of the problem. He also set a trap. So if anything is in the house upstairs it will be caught. It looked like no holes in the roof. But a gap where this fan vent thing is. Our son covered it up good with the wire screen I got. I hope they don't work their way through that. Otherwise I don't know what else to do.
After everything you guys have been through, I can not believe he is being like that! At least the work was finally done though. Hopefully he did it right instead of doing it half a*) just to get you off his back and him back on the computer. That does sound like a good idea, of taking away computer cords, until whatever job/chore he needs to do is completed, but that would also only work if DH would stand by you and the rules that you guys have laid out. I bet your DH secretly plays the game as well, and that is why he didnt want you deleting it or something.
you know ... maybe I have a naughty bone somewhere in my body ... but really, if DH plays the game too then all the MORE reason to hide the cords LOLOL
I'm glad your son did his lil chore ... however, I'm sad that DH is not standing behind you on whatever decisions you're making ... you've got a hell of a lot of patience m'dear! I might have lost it on him already!
